Hamptons artist Dorothy Frankel, a well-known sculptor, has announced that her "LOVE" sculpture has been accepted into the permanent collection of the Guild Hall Museum in East Hampton, which collects and exhibits artists of the East End of Long Island. The sculpture will be on view in the Sculpture Garden. "LOVE" has been exhibited in New York City Public Art as well as many other public art sites.

Frankel's work depicts a strong sense of connection to humanity, and "LOVE" is four Bronze hands in sign language which reflects the artist's sentiment that "In silence this sculpture depicts love, the emotions that unite us, exalt us and shows our commonality."

In 1997, Frankel created a series of sculptures called "Visual Poetry," the ongoing body of work draws from American Sign Language, yoga and universal forms. This sculpture in the series "Seeks to rouse our better angels, as we connect day to day, heart to heart, spirit to spirit, to the future."

Additionally, Frankel's "Circle 254" sculpture has been accepted into the permanent collection of the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill. Her "Circles" series was inspired by an enso, a Zen Buddhist symbol which denotes connectedness, enlightenment, elegance and the cyclical nature of life. The "Circular Form" series arose from a commission in 1998 to create a meditative sculpture according to Frankel, who continues, "The starting point was to sculpt an enso into a three dimensional piece, as this symbol is traditionally drawn on paper. These works are crafted in terra cotta to represent a grounding and deep connection to the earth. These forms question is the breath of our vision restricted by the form, or is our vision drawn through a portal into the expanding distance?"

"Inspired by the natural setting and artistic life of Long Island's East End, the Parrish Art Museum illuminates the creative process and how art and artists transform our experiences and understanding of the world and how we live in it. The museum focuses extensively on work by artists from the artist colony of the South Shore (Long Island) and North Shore (Long Island)."

A humble Frankel relayed to Hamptons.com: "I am honored to be included in both the Parrish and Guild Hall Museums' prestigious collections."
